Okay, everybody together: "Don't truncate mplayer's output!"
See  http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html , particularly 
the "What to report" section.

-ac wma9dmo does not handle audio format 0x161, only 0x162 and 0x163.
Check codecs.conf.  In the version of MPlayer I'm using (CVS 20031231),
format 0x161 is handled, with varying degrees of success, by the

audiocodec wmadmo
  info "Windows Media Audio DMO"
  status working
  format 0x161

audiocodec divx
  info "DivX audio (WMA)"
  status working
  format 0x161

audiocodec ffwmav2
  info "DivX audio v2 (ffmpeg)"
  status untested
  format 0x161
